Don Barnhart’s Hypnomania delivers interactive, improvisational and sidesplitting comedy while simultaneously unlocking the unique mysteries of the human mind. It's a musical, fast-paced journey through volunteers' subconscious creative genius that keeps audiences on the edges of their seats. Akin to releasing the hidden talents of a dozen improvisational comedians onstage with Barnhart serving as the ringleader, each performance is unique and fun for all.
“Don takes the positive aspects of hypnotic trances for a spin. In an industry dominated by embarrassing and shocking antics, the comedy brought out of our shared hopes and dreams is refreshing, honest and just plain funny.” Audience members have the option to volunteer or sit back and watch.
Don Barnhart’s Hypnomania is as empowering as it is entertaining and Barnhart leaves his audience volunteers feeling refreshed and recharged having learned a technique they can use long after the show. Using techniques found in NLP (Neuro-lingusitic programing), guided meditation and hypnosis, Barnhart teaches his volunteers to focus their energy to release their anxiety, stresses and fears and tap into their creative abilities with confidence.
